HAPPENING

This is a Rare Jewel: On Univision, a Positive take on Trump
by Ken Oliver and Valentina Humphrey  via News Busters
 

Here is something we seldom see on Univision: a straight-up interview with one of the most prominent Latino evangelical pastors in the United States today. One who at the same time is also rather close to, and positive about, President Donald Trump.

In the interview, Pastor Samuel Rodriguez, whose perspective and priorities are widely shared by millions of Hispanic Christians throughout the country (and who was invited by Trump to offer a prayer at the new President's inauguration) revealed that he is actually upbeat about what the President and the Congress will do on immigration.


 

Helping Students Overcome Insecurity
The Enemy wants our children to feel shame: here's how to defend against it.



by Dr. Andrea Ramirez via Christianity Today

Yvette Santana is passionate about women's ministry and education. She holds a Master's degree in Educational Psychology and has served as a counselor for at-risk youth in an urban public school. Today Yvette serves as Women's Discipleship Coordinator for the Church of God Southwest Region and as a leadership adviser for the Faith & Education Coalition.

Andrea Ramirez, executive director of the Faith and Education Coalition-NHCLC, recently interviewed Yvette on a common challenge for students: overcoming insecurity.

Why is insecurity, as it relates to education, important to address as Christians?

The issue of shame has plagued God's children since Genesis -when Adam and Eve hid from God in the garden. Perhaps it's the adversary's way of breaking us down, not allowing us to move forward toward our purposes in God.


CHOOSE GREATNESS

The Power of a Great Wife

Giuseppe Garibaldi was a wild, romantic man with great passion for life. He was inexperienced at many things but exceptional at fighting.

According to historian Robert Harvey, by the time he was 40, Garibaldi had been a merchant sea captain, an outlaw, a rebel leader under a death sentence and a mercenary soldier for two different countries. But then something happened. He was working on a ship in the Mediterranean when a group of Italian intellectual leaders came on board as passengers.

Garibaldi was fascinated by their arguments for human freedom and connected them to his understanding of the Christian faith. He became a warrior for freedom and decided to launch a crusade to unify and liberate his native Italy.

WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL

The Blessing of Enough
by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews

Now a wind went out from the LORD and drove quail in from the sea. It scattered them up to two cubits deep all around the camp, as far as a day's walk in any direction. - Numbers 11:31

The Torah portion for this week is Behaalotecha, from Numbers 8:1-12:16 and the Haftorah from Zechariah 2:14-4:7.

We live in a society of wanting more. There is always something else to want, to have, to own, leaving us feeling that there is no such thing as enough, let alone the possibility of having too much. Whatever it is that we have, we believe that we need more.

But while having too much seems enticing, the truth is that it can lead us to consequences just as unpleasant- or worse than - the test of having too little.
